Abstract:

An onsite rail and motor outloading study of Camp Ripley, Minnesota was conducted by the Military Traffic Management Command Transportation Engineering Agency, Newport News, Virginia, during the period 4 through 7 June 1979. The principal objective of the study was to determine the capability of the Camp Ripley rail system to support the deployment of the 47th Division and support-type units. Another objective was to identify any physical improvement, as well as any suitable commercial rail facilities, within Little Falls, Minnesota, that would significantly increase the current capability. This study includes the findings of a Federal Railway Administration FRA inspector, who inspected all trackage at Camp Ripley during the onsite study. author
